Mirror by Lil wayne
Good day miss... and fellow students. My name is... and I’m here to present a speech on conflict titled ‘mirror”. Hatred stirs up conflict but love covers all wrong. This means that self-hatred and unacceptance provokes internal conflict but self-acceptance, inner peace and love over-power conflict and give you every reason to love.

Wayne understands that he is the image and he tries to reflect himself “I see you’re not satisfied, and I don’t see nobody else. I see myself”. He knows within him that he is not happy for what he has become.
In the chorus, he refers to the image in the mirror as “mirror”, he tells the image of the use it has been to him and what it has told him “MIRROR on the wall here we are again, through my rise and fall, you’ve been my only friend, you told me that they can understand the man i am”. He asks rhetorical question “so why are we talking to each other again?”
In the second stanza, Lil Wayne realises his true self, he sees the truth behind the camouflage “Uh, I see the truth in your lies”. He realises that he Is on his own “I see nobody by your side”. He assumes that the image is a second person to comfort himself “but I’m with you when you are all alone and you correct me when I’m looking wrong…”, he could only trust himself.
In the third stanza, he stares deep at the mirror and sees his past right through “looking at me now I can see my past”. He also realises that deep inside he looks like his father, but he is not happy, he swears at him and becomes agresive “Damn I look like my f*****g dad”. He criticizes himself “I even look good in a broken mirror”. This positivity encourages and keeps him motivated “I see my mumma’s smile that’s a blessing”. His true self is trying to make a change “I see the change, I see the message. He understands himself better than any other person and he decides to start from what he understands “and no message could be even clearer. So I’m startin’ with the man in the mirror”.
